The Perfect Holiday Gift: Stylish And Functional


// Sunglasses – Spectacle Hut //

Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do. I love picking out the perfect present for my family, friends and loved ones. While some people stick to gift cards, I like to find something that the person will use, enjoy and remember. Personally, some of the best gifts I have received are presents that I use every day. For instance, my friend gave me a personalized mug for my grad school graduation that I use every day. Each morning, as I sip my morning chai, I remember my friend and her thoughtfulness. This holiday season, my blogger friends and I decided to have a holiday brunch at Raffles Hotel. To add to the fun, we had a Secret Santa. Since my Secret Santa gift was for a smart, talented, fashionista – my first thought was something fashion related! Since moving to Singapore, my favorite fashion accessory has been my sunglasses. With sunshine in SG, I never leave home without my sunnies! After a lot of thought, I decided sunglasses would be the perfect gift for my blogger bestie. Since sunglasses can be quite personal, I headed to Spectacle Hut to find the perfect pair!

The Perfect Holiday Gift: Stylish And Functional – Sunglasses!

The team at Spectacle Hut – Plaza Singapura was all about customer service. First, I was introduced to Jenny, the ophthalmologist, who also happens to love fashion. She showed me the latest styles from Dior, Prada, Miu Miu, Anna Sui, Tom Ford, Ray Ban, and so many more. As we looked through the options, Jenny helped me find the right sunglasses for my friend by narrowing our criteria to three main areas:

  • Face shape: We studied the face shape of my friend from photos to decide the type of glasses that would suit her face.
  • Style: We then agreed on the type of style that my friend would like. While I like large frames, I knew my friend liked more subtle street style looks. Thankfully Ray Ban had a lot of options for the type of style we were looking for.
  • Budget: The great thing about Spectacle Hut is they have sunglasses for all budgets. The store is also having a 20%-40% off promotion so I had even more options within my budget!

Thanks to Jenny, I was able to select a great pair of Ray Bans for my friend!
